Snake River Fishing Report – (8.15.19)
-Yellow Iron Excavation will be extracting gravel to widen and deepen the boat launch area in front of the Wilson Boat Ramp on Monday, August 19 starting around 9:00am. The ramp will remain open for private and commercial use but please be aware of heavy equipment on and around the ramp during the day.
-Snake River KOA Bridge construction advisory: Dave Kaufman, project engineer for WYDOT on the Jackson South II project, is advising of upcoming construction on the north bank of the river that could affect river users below the Snake River KOA Bridge. WYDOT is asking that river users take the river-left channel to avoid being under construction.
The Snake is stable, clear and fishing well! Discharge from Jackson Lake Dam has been settled at 2,300 cfs for some time now. Look for dry dropper rigs to remain the most productive method for the next month. Goldens, Chernobyls and Hopper imitations pairs with tungsten jig styled dropper will put some fish in the boat. Small dry fly fishing has been good with fish keying in on PMDs, Caddis and left over Yellow Sallies. Throwing streamers during low light periods can produce some surprises. The Snake can be busy this time of year; dawn patrol/floats can be good for your fishing as well as enjoying the water to yourself.
